It is possible spinal degeneration is causing some of your symptoms. The MRI is a good idea and an EMG may also help. Obviously there are other medical problems that need to be addressed also. There are other hydrocodone containing drugs with less acetaminophen such as Zydone or Norco.

Also found out that prostate is enlarge so they are scheduling me for a scope as well for possible cancer or palups. my concern is with having stenosis of the spine along with ddd and djd is there a possability that i am in a aggressive state of spinal deteriation?
: the acute denervation seems to be getting aggressively worse in one month i have now failed reflex test in legs and more in arms. I am starting to get
: concerned with it possible to be getting into the stages of quada equina?
: also i am on a muscle relaxer cyclobenzaprine and on 6 vikadin and 1 diazapam. which seem to not be phasing the pain level at all. i am scared to take the dosage of vikadin because of the tylonol problem and the acute attack on the liver i had in janaury.
: thats right at the limit for intake. any information would greatly help. i guess my concern is that my whole spine is going at once is that possible.?
: Oh and you still owe me a picture too with dogs if i remember right.
